strategy seems to have been in the last two election cycles is to write off vast swaths of the population. jonathan, i want to talk about the politics of this before we have to go. that is, obviously on the democratic party side, i mean, this is kind of a, you know, no brainer gate issue i would say for someone seeking the nomination on the democratic ticket. on the republican side, though, i'm not sure i agree with karl rove that the person who is their nominee would be an advocate. it certainly seems like it's going to be a much tougher issue in 2016 for someone seeking national office, given the numbers that chad was just talking about. >> very tough for someone on the republican side to not be in favor of marriage equality? >> correct. i mean, given the fund-raising issues. this is an area where republicans are raising a lot of money. it's obviously an area where vast swaths of the population have changed their opinion. >> right. >> i think it's going to be a harder position for republican in 2016. >> well, yes. if not 2016, certainly by 2020. look, in the last election, i

. >>> today the governor of colorado has managed to do what our elected representatives in the house and senate seem incapable of accomplishing. he's introduced legislation to address the epidemic of gun violence. governor, avid gun owner himself, today signed into new laws limiting ammunition clips to 15 rounds and requiring gun owners to pay for universal background checks. tragically he had to wait to sign the bill until after a press con frenz after the head of the department of corrections was shot and killed on his door shep. still shaken, the governor spoke about the need to limit high capacity magazines. >> it's that simple, these high-capacity magazines have potential to turn killers into killing machines. in certain circumstances, someone bent on destruction, even if they're slow just for a number of seconds, if that allows others to escape. >> julian epstein is a former counsel to the house judiciary committee and david is a nationally syndicated columnist and best-selling author who also lives in colorado. david, a mother whose daughter was killed in the aurora movie theater

last election. mitt roll any and paul ryan talked about the approach to the budget issues, the people in this country clearly said they didn't want to go in that direction. yesterday there was a vote on the house floor for that, unfortunately it passed with a lot of tea party members in the house. at the same time we still have not gotten a vote on common sense gun safety measures, the most obvious one being universal background checks, and as you said, speaker boehner had to walk back a proposal which called for the common-sense solution, because the tea party and others apparently bombarded his office when he made sense on this issue. so, look, the answer to this will require the american people to remain engaged and to demand that the victims in newtown, the victims in aurora, the victims of other mass shootings, and those who die every day from gun violence, that they get a vote in the house of representatives. >> but here's the problem, congressman. the polls is on the side of these common-sense measures. 57% support an assault weapons ban. 91% support background checks at gun sh

-elected. they more or less are on the same wavelength when it comes to israel's security. and the two of them are going to do the best they can to make this trip a success for their own domestic political reasons as well. >> dana, ten years ago, as you know, we started a war on the basis of false information. today we're looking at a war in syria where the question of who is using chemical weapons, even if they are using them, can't be confirmed. is it your view, dana, that our reluctance to engage in syria is a direct result of our experience in iraq? >> well, certainly it's a response to that, martin, but also the situation in syria is a lot more ambiguous and is not exactly clear what can be done there. but certainly the hesitation in responding here, not necessarily hesitation, but a skepticism about whether reports are to be believed or not, is very specifically a reaction to the gullibility that was expressed a little over ten years ago that led us into that war. so that's why there is every reason to be taking this cautiously and slowly, precisely because the administration has

terms of these gun regulations and it is going to take many members of congress losing elections before people in washington will realize that the politics on this thing have changed. the ground is shifting underneath the politicians right now. they don't see it, but the ground is shifting and as i say, it's going to have to take a concerted effort for many of these elected officials to lose office before they realize the public wants something very serious out of this. >> as i just said, julian. we put the phone number for congress and we invite members of the public, please do call your congressional members. just today weave seen a slew of gun-related headlines. three dead at quantico marine base. a 13 month old baby shot in the head in her stroller. a drunk teenage boy shot dead after entering the wrong home by mistake and yet what's happening? the people who say more gun, fewer laws, they are the ones today who appear to be winning this argument. the thing is that you have to understand -- i hope people can appreciate this and this is the disenchantment piece, the nra for th

verbal spit ball right at bush's brain, karl rove. >> these experts who keep losing elections, keep getting rehired, raking in millions, buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> rove responded that he didn't think it would be a very good -- he would be a very good candidate because he is, quote, sort of a balding fat guy. buck up, karl. take a big gulp. you have a long week ahead. we are joined now by msnbc political analyst, former senior adviser to the president, david axelrod live with us from phoenix, arizona. good afternoon, sir. >> martin, good to be with you. >> it's been suggested that you and your team were responsible for defining mitt romney and the republican party over the course of last year. in fact, both mr. romney and mrs. romney have complained that they were negatively defined by the president's campaign. but don't the events at cpac this weekend prove that if anyone's responsible for the ugly, noninclusive brand, it's the party, its

election. they're trying to sort of cover ground and recuperate from that sort of process. but scalia is, he's kind of like situated with the tea party republicans in a lot of his social beliefs. because of our access to the documentation of these court proceedings these days, the ways in which the information gets out really, really quickly, someone like scalia has essentially established himself as a representative of the right wing in too many ways for us to forget any time soon. these issues being onboard right now are going to prevent folk from distancing himself from the court in ways which we've done in the past. again, scalia is not the right guy for us to think about the supreme court in an apolitical sense. >> nia malika, i'm going to end you. in that context, one thing i thought was so interesting in the pew poll was that actually conservatives think that the court is too liberal. right? so politically speaking, we're sort of all over the map here. >> that's right. and that's because everyone, i think, in conservative circles, they were very surprised john roberts coming out a
